Kamala Harris says she wants to abolish private health insurance. The next day, her spokesperson says, “She didn’t really mean it.”

Virginia Governor Northam says he supports abortion after the baby is delivered. His spokesperson quickly issues a statement saying, “He didn’t really mean it.”

They do mean it. They’re like your Uncle who gets plastered at Thanksgiving dinner and tells another family member what he really thinks about him, or her. That is what your Uncle truly thinks. The walk back is the lie.

When Scaramucci covered for Trump by saying “Don’t take him literally, take him symbolically,” the Bill Mahers of the world ridiculed him. But for all his many faults, Trump has never said anything as insane and heartless as the idea that post-birth abortion should be legal.

We’ve reached rock bottom, and we’re still digging. God help us.

    The worst thing the governor said was after birth, the infant would be made comfortable while the mother, family, and docs have a big confab. If so decided, then infant would be eliminated.

    Comfortably, I assume . . .

    They want to abolish private property, eliminate walls and any other form of self defense so they can once again start murdering un-useful people by the tens of millions and then create a society where they own all the property that they just made “public” and rule over it by coercing millions into dependence that can be leveraged into cheap labor that they can utilize to maintain a high standard of living for themselves. Period.

    Yeah, when I heard that bit about that post-delivery “conversation” that could result in the newborn’s death, immediately I thought ‘that’s a conspiracy to commit premeditated first-degree murder, and if carried out, then it’s also in fact premeditated first-degree murder.

    Advocates of legalizing this and such infanticide as the New York law are fanatically insane.

    Which law takes precedence? If one law says killing someone is legal and the other says illegal, who decides?

    Naturally the powerful decide. Making laws contradictory is actually a feature not a bug.

    The Democrats have eliminated God from their party platform so they might as well just nominate Satan to be their Presidential candidate.

    Killing children in the ninth month or after they’ve been born is hitting rock bottom. It turns my stomach.

    This is why leftists constantly call you a racist who wants to eat poor people. They believe that practicing dishonesty in the service of leftism is OK so they think conservatives are OK with lying. It is self-projection.
